St. Louis Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a homer and two walks Monday against the Brewers. Goldschmidt's strikeout rate has taken another jump this year (21 K in 74 PA) after taking a significant one last season, but no one cares much right now because he has seven homers in 16 games. We wouldn't expect him to get up to the .290-.300 he's used to in the batting average department, but he'll remain plenty valuable, of course.

Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Christian Yelich hit three homers and drove in seven runs as the Brewers beat the Cardinals 10-7 on Monday. Back-to-back MVP awards? Yelich is crushing it in the early going, collecting eight homers and 22 RBI in 17 games. He has an 11/11 K/BB ratio, which seems like a nice improvement on last year's 136/68 mark in about nine times as much playing time. The three-homer game was the first of his career. He had just two previous two-homer games.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals have now lost eight of their last nine meetings with the Brewers.

Milwaukee

The Brewers have beaten the Cardinals in four of the previous five meetings at Miller Park.

Prediction:

I’m assuming Mike Shildt and Mike Maddux will have a better approach tonight for Yelich, who hit three home runs off their pitchers last night at Miller Park. It helps having Jack Flaherty on the mound tonight, as he is quickly becoming the Cardinals’ best pitcher. It’s also safe to assume that Shildt won’t leave Andrew Miller, the team’s best left-handed reliever, stay in the bullpen all night as the Brewers’ left-handed batters pound St. Louis’ other relievers. I like the value in the underdog Cards tonight.

The Pick: St. Louis Cardinals +105
